The helicopter crash occurred on Friday in Shabwa, a province that has seen US air strikes target al-Qaeda’s local branch, Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, in recent months.
A report in Abu Dhabi's The National newspaper, said: "A member of the Abu Dhabi royal family is receiving medical treatment after being injured when a UAE Armed Forces helicopter crashed in Yemen.
"Sheikh Zayed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan, who has served in the Presidential Guard, was hurt alongside two others when the aircraft went down in Shabwa province.
"Four Emirati servicemen were also killed. They were laid to rest on Saturday evening."
At least 94 Emirati soldiers have died in the conflict since it began two and a half years ago.
The Saudi-led coalition began its war in Yemen in March 2015 against the Iran-allied Houthis who hold the capital, Sanaa.
